Elvira B (kr) wrote: This film saved Eric Rohmer in my book. I bought it by chance, just figured I ought to be a good cinephile and give him a second chance to really "shine" after Ma Nuit Chez Maud, which I liked but didn't love. Luckily I thought Pauline la Plage is a wonderful film; may seem very simple at first but there's something about it that's really enrapturing.In the film, Pauline, a young girl who's never been in love, is spending a few days at the beach under the care of her cousin Marion, an exuberant woman, maybe in her mid-thirties. One day, after a swim, they come across Pierre, an old flame of Marion's from the days before her marriage -and divorce-. Immediately, an acquaintance of Pierre, Henri, the oldest of the group, sneaks into the conversation and introduces himself to the girls. So a party of four is constituted and drama follows.These four characters are excellently developed. Rohmer discreetly slips us anecdotes and impressions from their past, and engages us in their conversations about love and lust over wine and dinner. Their talk is candid and insightful but not overly philosophical. They are intelligent people, discussing serenely and comparing their moral viewpoints as their relationships with each other change in slight ways. Pierre believes in true, lasting love, Marion in love at first sight, Henri in having as many women as come his way, and Pauline just wants to find someone she can know, and then love.Soon enough the occasion arises to put the 'talk' in practice, and for attitudes to challenge each other. Henri and Marion begin an affair, much to Pierre's despair. Pauline observes the Henri-Marion-Pierre love triangle from a distance, at times with concern and at times with some disgust, until she meets a boy at the beach that puts her mind on her own romantic education. Then, in a narrative twist so well introduced that at the moment I didn't grasp the weight it would have in the rest of the story, an unfortunate discovery leads to misunderstandings that put everyone's "love" under scrutiny.The film unfolds by the sea. Whether walking by the shore, going knee-deep into the waves, sunbathing, sneaking into each other's houses through the window, laying in bed in the morning, riding bicycles around town, the camera follows each character under a beautiful yellow light. They walk around skimpily dressed at all times, as if exposing themselves, expecting something to happen, to make contact. Their state of mind is hazy and decadent; they maintain a casual but steady physical contact with each other, they live in the present, they seldom talk about their lives in the city. I can only compare the feel with the first chapters of Bonjour, Tristesse , abandon and bliss mixed with a little anguish.Pauline la Plage's charm is the curiosity it sparks. It seems to lead somewhere, to a conflict we don't quite foresee, and then delivers it in a purely cinematic manner. It also rests on the charisma of its characters, and on dialog great enough to construct believable characters and make them worth caring for. I found it both amusing and thought-provoking, and a worthy hour-and-a-half escapade towards a final asseveration we have known all along, but were maybe too cowardly to accept as a solution.

Maineutral R (ca) wrote: Ridiculous acting, bad over-the-top dialogue, stupid-minimal character development, awful plot, abysmal-fast pace and lack of self-care, this film is some of the worst i have seen in videogame adaptations. The worst detail? Ryu Hayabusa, here they fucked-up a great videogame character to a bland, nothing complex ninja. That's bad guys, i'm pissed off.

Howard B (kr) wrote: A brilliant performance from Michael Caine in a story that really does play on the fears many more vulnerable people do suffer in dangerous parts of modern London. The vigilante twist makes this quite a crowd pleasing film as well and therefore hard not to enjoy. The film's uncensored and realistic take on just how evil youth gangs can be is very much to it's credit. Such a constantly dark tone however, does fail to give enough contrast from which to view the dark events as they unfold. All in all, a fantastically involving and emotional movie if you can knuckle down for quite a pessimistic two hours.

Jayakrishnan R (mx) wrote: 45%This is all too girlish, perhaps I shouldn't have seen it after all. Aside from Meryl Streep's acting, there's nothing really mature here. All the rest is some fashion junk and some common sex and the city kind of situations.
